As a beginner in the crypto world, you can face challenges. For example, when you get to the point where you are asked for your wallet.
The easiest way to get started is to use the software wallet MetaMask which is available as a browser extension or as a mobile app.
In the next few steps, we explain how to install the MetaMask extension in your browser.
1. Installation of MetaMask
The first thing you need to decide is which browser you want to install MetaMask. Currently there are 4 browsers that are supported:
- Google Chrome
- Microsoft Edge
- Mozilla Firefox
Download the extension in your browser via the extension-manager or directly from MetaMask’s website. Never install the extension from an untrusted website.
2. Set your password
After the installation is complete, the “Fox-Icon” should appear in your browser. Click on the “Fox-Icon” and start the setup process. After clicking “Get Started”, you will be able to create a wallet.
On the next page, you can contribute to the improvement of MetaMask. This is not necessary for the creation of the wallet.
In the next step, you can set a secure password, which is best to write down and keep in a safe place.
The password is stored only in the browser and not on a central server.
3. The Recovery-Seed-Phrase
Write down the phrase on a piece of paper and keep it in a safe place. If you want even more security, write it on several pieces of paper and keep each in 2-3 different places. Never give the recovery-seed-phrase to anyone. With the recovery-seed-phrase, anyone can appropriate your BitDmark forever.
After you have written down the recovery-seed-phrase you have to confirm it in the next step. If it is correct and you have confirmed, the wallet is created.
4. Add a network
Now you have a MetaMask wallet. Let’s go to the last step and add a new network. To do this, click on Ethereum Mainnet at the top and select Add Network.
Now you will see 5 fields, please fill them with the following data:
- Networkname: Smart Chain
- New RPC-URL: https://bsc-dataseed.binance.org/
- ChainID: 56
- Symbol: BNB
- Block Explorer URL: https://bscscan.com
After you have entered the data, click Save. Congratulations You have successfully installed and configured MetaMask.
Now you can login with your MetaMask in our sales platform and Buy BitDmark.
